Miscellaneous Musings

It’s a slow day around these parts. Well, not really… I’m just busy with trying to wrap up a comic book script, or two right now. I’m also lining up a few other projects.
  • No Flash Fiction today. I was too busy working on the two scripts that I’ve currently got first and foremost on my plate that I need to wrap up in order to pay rent.
  • I also think I may have started my first novella — “novel” sounds to ambitious at this point. It’s based on an idea that I had for a comic book awhile back, but I think it would make a good pulp-style detective story. And no, it’s not Chase.
  • Speaking of other projects… My Side Project Press effort is still in the works. I’m just waiting on a few writers for their contribution to the first volume of the Short Attention Span Reader. You guys know who you are. I’m also trying to find sequential artists to fit an an idea that I have for a Sci-Fi Anthology-Thingie — but that is very much in the infancy stage.
  • I’m still mulling over whether or not to give Zuda Comics a shot. I’ll need to find an artist to collaborate with because I don’t think my artistic chops can cut it, but I’ve got a couple of ideas that I think would make good 8-page endeavors. Maybe I should’ve gone that route with Ninja Bandito.
  • I’ve been adding a few links and such to the right side bar — forums I visit, more artists and writers that I dig, etc…
  • I also added a Comic Books page with more detailed information on the various comic books that I have contributed to and how to get them.
  • I’m itching to start a screenplay as well. Although I’ve written eight in the pass, it’s been over a decade since I started a fresh script and completed it. I think I have the concept that I want to give this a go with — I just need to wedge it in with everything else I’ve got going on.
  • I’m hoping to announce Hero Happy Hour happenings soon — stay tuned.
  • I think I’m officially jazzed for Cloverfield. I woke up this morning thinking it was out today for some reason. But alas, I still have to wait another week. Everything that I’ve read or heard from folk that have seen has given my high hopes for this flick. It’ll also be my first opportunity to see the teaser trailer for Star Trek. Since it is a Paramount movie, seeing a trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull would be a pleasant added surprise.
  • The other day I read Boom! Studios new post-apocalyptic comic book North Wind — which has sold out — and rather dug it. I read it online, and you can too.
  • And, finally… Maila Nurmi has passed away. She was best known for her creation and portrayal of the character Vampira — in both film (The Vampira Show) and television. Her most notable film appearance was in Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space, as well as undoubtedly being the inspiration for Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She passed away in her sleep at age 86.
